Today we have a special guest on Yoga with Melissa - Aprille Walker from The Yoga Ranger Studio. Aprille offers a variety of practices online including Yin Yoga, Restorative, Flow, Pranayama (breath regulation) and Meditation. Aprille invites a turning inwards and quiet reflection in her yoga classes. Her yin yoga offers long holds so that you can be with your own inner experience and that is what I appreciate most about her teaching style.
This practice is all about connecting with your body, mind, and breath through longer held, ground bound poses. We will be beginning at the top of the body and working our way down for a "head to toes" Yin Yoga experience - releasing tension, connecting to our breath, mobilizing our connective tissue, strengthening our bones/joints, and sensing our entire body as a whole. Today you will practice: Supported Fish or Matsyasana (variation), Banana Pose or Bananasana, 1/2 Twisted Ropes, Sphynx or Shalamba Bhujangasana, Seal, Child's Pose or Balasana, Cat Pulling It's Tail, Seated Forward Fold or Sukhasana (variation), Reclining Twist or Supta Jathara Parivartanasana, Corpse Pose or Savasana
